As I’ve argued, multiple Republican Senate candidates have been, to varying degrees, running against the word “Obamacare” while professing support for its general goals and fudging on whether they would take its benefits away from people. This suggests the politics of Obamcare — while a net liability for Dems — are unfolding in a more […]
It’s often observed that the House GOP’s lurch to the right on policy and periodic outbreaks of reckless brinksmanship have made life difficult for statewide GOP candidates who are trying to appeal to a more diverse electorate than that found in many House GOP districts. Case in point: Thom Tillis, who is running for Senate […]
In Arkansas, GOP Senate candidate Tom Cotton is running an ad attacking Senator Mark Pryor over the border crisis that veers headlong into Ted Cruz/Steve King territory.

It’s more a gamble on what swing voters think has happened to the economy, and on the reasons struggling Americans think they aren’t getting ahead. Today’s new NBC/WSJ poll finds that 49 percent of Americans either don’t know who […]
Ever since President Obama seized on the announcement of eight million Obamacare sign-ups to urge Democratic candidates to run proudly on the law, commentators have been debating whether Dem candidates should — or would — listen. The media storyline has been that, No, Dems are uniformly running from the law — proof, once again, that […]
Eight years ago, many people believed — and I was one of them — that while it was certainly not inevitable that Hillary Clinton would become the Democratic nominee for president, she was sure to run a smart, efficient campaign. After all, if there was anything you could have said about the Clintons and the […]

Uh oh. Run for your lives, Democrats! Republicans are launching a major new attack on the Affordable Care Act! The New York Times goes big with a new report detailing that House Republicans are launching a “multi-layered, sequenced assault” on Obamacare.
